Entire Family

Wim Wenders is a celebrated film director who won the Palme d’Or in 1984 for his film Paris, Texas. He is also an artist and uses photography as his medium. Entire Family was shot during his travels to Las Vegas, a small New Mexico town far away from its more famous namesake in Nevada. He felt compelled to see this sister city. Upon arrival, he found its streets deserted, and its empty shop fronts bathed in a hot afternoon light.

The framing veers slightly to the left to reveal a sign that reads "ENTIRE FAMILY"; adding tension to the scene as it heightens the sense of solitude and hints at the notion of disappearance. Wenders describes this work as "one of my favourites".
